The Peter Jackson Diaries I: Designing The Dwarves by yourparodies The Peter Jackson Diaries I: Designing The Dwarves by yourparodies
Watch Peter Jackson battle trolls, critics, purists and all kinds of dangers on his way to turn the Hobbit into a movie!

I think it's fair to say that Sir Peter Jackson is one of the most beloved directors of all time. However, he is also one of the most criticized ones, at least online.

I have to say that I NEVER saw any other director, who was critisized for literally EVERYTHING he ever did, every single little decision he made, as much as Peter Jackson seems to be. (I guess that makes him the Anti-Nolan in that aspect...)
But I guess that's what you get, when you make films for one of the most unsatisfiable of fandoms, and of course, when you make something THIS BIG and THIS SUCCESSFULL, then you get trolls and know-it-all-critics comming out of the woodwork too, so that's another thing...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say that everyone who dares to dislike something is a troll or an idiot - but there were quite some "complaints" that I saw online that made me headdesk pretty hard...

NOTE: All complaints and critics potrayed in this series actually come from REAL comments I encountered online...
Yes, that means some people really said these things... But you know, what they say: You can only parody smart people - with stupid ones, it's enough to quote them... :D

I have to admit, I didn't like the LoTR trilogy much.  My favorite scenes didn't make it into the films (like Tom Bombadil) and I think the trilogy would have benefited from being split into six films instead of just three.  The Hobbit, however, I absolutely adore.  :)

The only thing that worries me is indecent shortness of Thorin's beard.  I bet some dwarf women have longer beards than him.

You know what? I agree with Agent Smith and Skynet. Humans need to nuked. We're worse than a virus! We're FUCKING IDIOTS!!!

Indeed. :no:

(Which is kind of funny, considering that Agent Smith happens to be played by Hugo 'Lord Elrond' Weaving himself... ;))

Seriously, I would personally give the Ring to Sauron if I could! Here man, you can have it! These fucking Men deserve to be Orc and Troll food! All I want is a Mirkwood Spider and a Fellbeast as pets, maybe a Nazgul Sword autographed by the Witch-King and a Mace like Azog's! Also, have you ever heard of Westeros? There's some dark creatures named White Walkers and a woman with three dragons who can replace Smaug there who'd love to meet you! I also know of a place called Narnia, the Queen there would be an awesome ally for you!

Witch-King of Angmar: ...Maybe we should make him our ambassador.
Saruman: Way better than the Mouth. Cleaner teeth too, for a change!
Mouth of Sauron: HEY!

Oh, people can't just sit, watch and criticize without being childish. Although, those people just make PJ more popular.
